want to point out that there was eaks lent story, i believe on npr, about a rampage in a china school in which a madman went after children in a school with a knife and he stabbed over 20 of them, but none of them died. and that's the key difference. when you have an automatic weapon that you can rapidly reload, when you have a gun, it kills. it kills more easily. it's hard to stab people to death. >> certainly you're not suggesting that a communist society rules are what we should follow. i mean, a mentally disturbed man stole guns. i haven't been shown any piece of legislation that is going to change that. if there was a gun law that would change the fact that a mentally disturbed man couldn't steal a gun, i would be for it, but the simple fact is, judy, i don't care what law you're going to put in place, the mentally disturbed man is going to steal a gun. >> you can't abolish-- >> he didn't have to steal it, he took it from his mother, what happened in columbine, took them from their parents and the n.r.a., i consider to be a completely utterly destructive organization in this soci

was recently interviewed by npr on that very subject somebody wrote an article and its on the internet. it's called do we need a second inauguration, and i felt the country wouldn't lose out at all if they scaled back the will that for sure. >> one more question. >> has any president-elect died before he was inaugurated? >> that's never happened. there was an assassination attempt on president roosevelt in 1932 but didn't succeed. >> does the vice president automatically become the president? >> the vice president-elect would take over? >> i believe that would be correct? >> thank you. >> [inaudible] >> will of course he was the civil war president and washington is said to have been an armed camp at the time of his inauguration with sharpshooters on all of the rooftops sort of like it is now.

's a question for you. if santa didn't have magic, how would he deliver all those gifts? npr's "planet money" talked to fedex and came up with these numbers. he'd need 46 international distribution centers, with miles of conveyor belts. he would need 100 weathermen to monitor his route in real-time. and altogether, he'd need 12 million employees. good thing santa has that magic. >> yeah. we could use those jobs these days. but, hey, we all believe in santa. good luck. >>> next on this friday morning, breaking news overnight. an arrest in the prison break that captivated chicago. inmates who escaped using bedsheets. >>> and a very happy christmas for two little girls after a very successful surgery. ♪ ♪ i woke up to a feeling ♪ every little thing has meaning ♪ ♪ i woke up to a light bulb on ♪ every little thing is possible now ♪ [ female announcer ] we've added a touch of philadelphia cream cheese to our kraft natural cheese to make it creamier so whatever you make isn't just good, it's amazing. ♪ ...is amazing with the love that i found ♪ ♪ [ female announcer ] kay jewele

for 17% of the debt. adam davidson is the co-founder of npr's planet money, and he did the math. he wrote in the "new york times" a while ago a set of numbers that stuck with me. that increasing the middle class tax burden an additional 8% would actually have a bigger impact than taxing millionaires at 100%. of course, once you tax millionaires at 100% there's nothing else the next year. even bill clinton aagrees. here's what he said at a conference back in may. >> i think you could tax me at 100%, and you wouldn't balance the budget. we are all going to have to contribute to this. if middle class people's wages were going up again and we had some growth in the economy, i don't think they would object to going back to the tax rates that were there when i was predz. >> with now break through today and the fiscal cliff negotiations, is this a starting point?

, congressional correspondent for the national journal and the white house correspondent for npr. thanks to all of you. susan, first to you, you've been watching all the body language from the speaker and the president. now at least they're in direct talks. could we get the grand bargain that was aborted a year ago? >> i'm not sure we're going to get the grand bargain, the one with the big pieces that kind of get us on a path so we don't have to revisit these issues in this way, but i think it looks more likely we're going to get a deal that will prevent us from going off the fiscal cliff and probably going to be a deal that the white house will be happy with. i think it's increasingly clear that the white house has the upper hand, they're better off if -- they're better off than republicans if we go over the fiscal cliff. they have leverage from the campaign. that's the directionion -- speaker boehner today kept the door open to raising rates on the wealthy as part of a negotiating plan. >> at the white house, what are you hearing as to how much flexibility the president thinks he has? >> it's
